BOLO Books hosted the cover reveal of the upcoming novel-in-stories that E.A. Aymar and I co-edited. The Swamp Killers is coming to you on March 16, 2020 with Down & Out Books! I’m so excited for this one. It’s most of the same crew from The Night of the Flood with the addition of some new writers.
THE SWAMP KILLERS: A Novel in Stories
Here’s what we know is true.
Timmy Milici, a low-level hitter with the infamous Atlanta-based Duplass crime family, ran off with Melody Duplass to Jacksonville, Florida. Olivia Duplass, her mother and head of the Duplass family, was incensed, and put a price on Timmy—a hundred thousand for his corpse, but with explicit instructions that her daughter not be harmed.
We know that’s true.
Or, at least, we think we do.
Sixteen writers tell their versions of what happened those fateful days in this gripping novel-in-stories, brought to you from the team behind The Night of the Flood.
Contributors: E.A. Aymar, Sarah M. Chen, Hilary Davidson, Alex Dolan, Rebecca Drake, Gwen Florio, Elizabeth Heiter, J.J. Hensley, Susi Holliday, Shannon Kirk, Tara Laskowski, Jenny Milchman, Alan Orloff, Tom Sweterlitsch, Art Taylor, and Wendy Tyson.
It’s out in the world now! The anthology that I’m in featuring short stories inspired by the songs of The Go-Go’s is available for purchase. My story “Fading Fast” is a revenge tale gone horribly wrong.
All proceeds go to Planned Parenthood which really makes me happy. And the Foreword is written by Jane Wiedlin! Thank you to Holly West for making this happen and for being an amazing editor. Purchase links below!
I was inspired to write this story after I read about a young couple who sought revenge against a man who abused her. The justice system failed her as it does for so many victims of sexual assault and abuse.
I’m so excited for this collection to come out and it’s only in one more week! Edited by Holly West and includes such talented authors like Lori Rader-Day, Hilary Davidson, and Patricia Abbott. With a foreword by Jane Wiedlin herself!
So excited to see BOLO Books come out with their Top Reads of 2018. It’s always a treat to see which books make Kristopher’s list. I always learn of must-read books so it’s great for holiday shopping (for myself too!). But it was even more special to see The Night of the Flood as Top Anthology of the Year. Thank you, BOLO Books!
I’m thrilled to be in this all-female special issue of Switchblade. It’s the Stiletto Heeled: Women of Noir issue. All women authors featuring stories with protagonists who are women and edited by Lisa Douglass, who is yes, a woman. How cool is that?
It’s my first publication in this anthology and it’s about time. Scotch Rutherford started this killer magazine a couple years ago and it’s already made quite a name for itself in the noir community.
This special issue includes my short story “Influencers” set in the world of hip hop and YouTube. It’s available on Kindle now and the print will be released in a few weeks. So check it out!
I’ll be speaking at the Sisters in Crime / LA panel at the Pasadena Central Library on Thursday, September 13 at 7pm. This is a panel featuring 11 of us writers in the latest SinC/LA anthology The Last Resort.
Hope to see some of you there!

My short story “A Real Scorcher” was selected out of hundreds to be included in British publisher Fahrenheit Press’s first short story collection aptly titled NOIRVILLE. It’s about a couple who go on a “let’s save our marriage” road trip to Mexico only to unexpectedly stop in Plaster City, a town nobody visits on purpose.
Towards the end of 2017 Fahrenheit Press launched a short story competition to showcase talented crime fiction writers from all around the world.
Our crack panel of judges whittled down the hundreds of entries we received to the 15 stories contained in this anthology. We believe these authors represent some of the most exciting crime fiction being written today.
